All Cricket lovers sign now!!

The cricket issue really is getting silly now. Hand sanitiser and hand washing breaks would surely mitigate any risk from the ball. The recreational sport could die in this country if it lost an entire summer. 

Given the easing of lockdown from 4th July, surely this should now mean recreational cricket can resume albeit with some sensible restrictions in place. 

The Country clearly wish for cricket to take place! Its now time for the government to make it happen! Im fed up of seeing packed beaches , shops , gardens etc....flocks of people up to thousands but hearing cricket is unsafe!

The ECB has been very clear in its guidance of how to get the game on and how they wish to.

The only delay now is clearance from the UK government!

Lets get the game restarted now!

No cricket at club level this year could see participation levels and interest in the sport drop which is not what any wishes to see especially within the younger generation.

It's hard to understand how a well measured game of cricket with safety measures in place around Covid-19 cannot be played but beaches are allowed to be packed , grocery stores rammed to the max and gatherings for parties and barbecues etc not deemed unsafe.
